I really am a female carpenter.
I love to build stuff.
Fresh out of high school I joined up with a construction crew that dismantled and rebuilt farm silos. I then married a man who became a carpenter and built homes and barns for a living. So, I joined his crew and have loved every minute of it.
I am also a mom of five amazing kids, and a somewhat youngish (the math does work out) ‘MiMi’ of four adorable grandsons. I love my family!!!
I also love to write, speak, and blog about Christ and spiritiual construction.
Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy.
More about Mary
Although Mary resides deep in the heart of Texas, her roots are in the rich black dirt of Minnesota s farmlands. Studying Elementary Education in college did nothing to prepare her for a life of construction and remodeling. Fresh out of college, she joined up with a traveling construction crew that tore down, moved and rebuilt the big blue silos seen across America s heartland. Later in life, Mary and her husband started their own construction business which gave her another opportunity to build and remodel everything from traditional frame homes to quaint log cabins. For the past five years, Mary and her husband Tony have been blessed with the opportunity to serve Christ through a Christian writing ministry called Carpenter s Guide Ministries, Inc. She is a mother to five beautiful children and a grandma to four busy boys the crowning jewels of her life.
